As I type this we’ve once again dipped down to 32°F inside the perimeter; it’s 5:30am.
I had intended to make my run to John’s Creek yesterday very productive, especially when I passed a Lidl along the route. I imagined stops at Lowe’s, Lidl, Aldi, perhaps Target, and lunch somewhere along Buford Highway. While I did manage a stop at a far flung Lowe’s before attending my survey, that’s the only stop I made. Ashamedly, I “rushed” home to do some choring, but I wasn’t motivated in the least once I finally got outside, so I did very little work.
Because I needed exercise I did retrace Monday night’s hash trail on foot in the afternoon, clocking about 3.5 miles round trip during about an hour-long walk.
The rest of my evening involved lounging. I baked a frozen pizza, which I topped with jalapeños, red bell pepper, and mushrooms in an effort to clean out the refrigerator a wee little bit. While eating I watched tv. I was whooped by 8:00pm, because starting my day at 5:00am tends to do that to me.
Today will be a choring day, dagnabit! I had intended to go to my nearest Lowe’s first thing this morning to see what they have in stock in regards to seed potatoes, but I am tired of going out in freezing temperatures. My drive up to Caroline Street will have to wait until tomorrow morning. Today I intend to lay out a cement block raised garden bed, start filling the newly-installed garden beds with compost, and starting some seeds in trays that I will put into the new greenhouse. BTW, the cheaper bricks seem to be working marvelously as weights on the greenhouse’s outer membrane. The biggest complaint about these cheap greenhouses is that they fly away during heavy winds. If I can manage to find the time to do a little more yard cleanup and organizing as I do all this that will be a major win. As I continue to clean, install, and think, my “plans” change, causing me pause to stop, rethink, and hope this version of the plan works.
Tonight is a Betsy Night, and it’s my turn to cook. I think tonight will be “Build Your Own Taco” night, but this means I will have to run to a grocery store to secure a few of the toppings one normally puts atop tacos. Even with a house full of food I am missing ingredients…
Hope you are having a great week this far.
